Born today, you are always willing to look at a given situation square in the face, to assess it honestly, to judge how it affects you in a realistic manner and to base your decisions on the way things are -- not the way you wish they could be. This ability to work within the realistic confines of daily life will surely give you the advantage in a number of key areas -- but certainly professionally, indeed.
Just as you insist on taking the credit for your successes, you will always acknowledge your own mistakes -- and nowhere is this truer than in your personal life. Indeed, both friends and loved ones surely always feel close to you because they know that you will tell it like it is and avoid any and all deceptions in your personal dealings.
Also born on this date are: Harry S. Truman, U.S. president; David Attenborough, TV host; Don Rickles, comedian and actor; Rick Nelson, singer; Toni Tennille, singer; Sonny Liston, boxer; Ronnie Lott, football player.

SUNDAY, MAY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Plant your feet, set your back and let fly! Today you have much to say and you must appear strong and virtually invincible as you say it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll have the opportunity to try something new for the first time, and you mustn't ever let any preconceived notions stand in your way!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The situation you find yourself in today will require a full commitment from you if you're going to avoid danger and impress your fans.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to hide your true desires from a friend or co-worker today simply to get through a routine series of tasks. Talk openly later.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You likely feel that you're successfully concealing something from another, but that is hardly true. He or she knows more than you do, in fact.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A situation calls to you today that combines a social outlet with a professional opportunity. You don't want to say no to this, certainly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to receive another offer from the same familiar source -- but today you will want to take it more seriously than you yet have.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't have to deck out a new space to suit your personality and taste in order to get some good work done -- but it would be enjoyable!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone is waiting for you to pass judgment today on a recent endeavor, but you're not willing to say what has to be said -- just yet.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're eager to enjoy yourself with one or two special friends, and you may -- once you get a certain job finished and records completed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can entertain others today even while getting a lot of work done. There's no current rule against combining business and pleasure.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may feel as though someone is trying to sabotage your efforts, but the truth is that this is just part of a legitimate competition.
